Heading for Kinesio Taping for the Photographer

Kinesio Taping for the Photographer

By Pauline Hsu, Kinesio Taping Association Taiwan


Our Kinesio Taping Association chapter in Taiwan offers a wealth of everyday Kinesio Taping suggestions. Here is a Kinesio Taping technique for photographers.

Whether you want to take pictures for beauty, food or outdoor sights, do not let an unsteady hand spoil your good mood. You can use the following taping to help stabilize posture:

Taping for the Shoulder, A, Wrist Taping B, Side Arm Taping C

  1. For stability over the shoulder, start with one I-strip of Kinesio Tape, about four squares in length. Apply with gentle, paper-off tension from superior border of scapula to the lower edge of the collarbone.
  2. For wrist stability, tape around the wrist with an I-strip (about three squares long) so that the ends meet but do not overlap on the inside of the wrist.
  3. For scapular stability, take a third I-strip of five or six squares and tape from the inside edge of the shoulder blade around the shoulder horizontally to the front of the shoulder.

Now that you’ve got your stability, focus the camera, gently press the shutter and start shooting!

What is the Kinesio Taping Method?

By KinesioTape

Kinesio® cannot be understood without understanding our story. Dr. Kenzo Kase developed the Kinesio Taping® Method in the 1970s to fill a void in the treatment options that were available at that time. He was searching for a way to facilitate the body’s natural healing process and prolong the benefits of his treatment after his patients left his clinic. Through his education as a chiropractor, his innate ability to sense internal pain and dysfunction through the skin and his creative therapeutic mind, Dr. Kase was able to develop new methods of treating his diagnoses. Among these methods, Kinesio® Taping industry was born and soon all other therapeutic elastic tape companies built upon Kinesio tape and methods.

The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.

Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, Kinesio® Tex Tape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric, and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.

If it doesn’t say Kinesio®, its not the real thing
